So be sure to take time out today to tell mom why you love her so much. We know we love the mothers of our couples for so many reasons, but mostly because you created the beautiful children that we get to photograph on one of the biggest days of their lives! So thank you to all of the moms out there who have loved unconditionally, picked up the pieces when things were going wrong, and chose to take on the hardest job out there- being a mom!

Bride In Front of Stained Glass Window
Melanie in Spendor

A gorgeous spring day and young bride’s heart finds romance! Or it could be a Model Shoot in cooperation with Geneva College and The Geneva College Photography Club! Our delightful model Melanie was thrilled to be seen in this stunning David’s Bridal gown and veil courtesy of the David’s Bridal McKnight Road Store.

Melanie Loves Her Short, Sexy Wedding Dress

Short for summer? A short wedding gown can be very feminine and expressive. Melanie shows the way in this delightful gown and bird-cage veil from David’s Bridal.

Black and White – Perfect For Bridal Portraits

Black and White can sometimes tell your story better than color. B&W can show emotion more clearly because there are fewer distractions.
